Play park bid wins lottery backing

Montgomery’s bid for a new play park has received a £2,000 boost from the Postcode Community Trust.

The Friends of Montgomery Play Park said the cash from the grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery will go towards the development of a “bespoke, imaginative and inclusive play park that offers much-needed enhanced physical play opportunities for all ages and abilities”. 

Alex Boyd Jones, Chair of the Friends Group, said: “We have all been working hard to raise funds to get this project off the ground and this grant will help to make those plans a reality.

“The town desperately needs to have a new play area to replace the old and inadequate facilities. We are hugely grateful to the players of People’s Postcode Lottery for this boost for our community.”

The Friends have launched a new website at https://playpark.montgomery-wales.uk, which gives a comprehensive overview of the project to date and a chance to see the proposed plans and how people might be able to support.

The group is indebted to Adam Cusack from G17 IT Solutions, who has generously supported the project by designing and implementing the website, and to Montgomery Town Council who have given support to hosting and integrating it within the Town website.

Plans are underway for further community fundraisers, building on the success of the Scarecrow Trail and Competition last October.

Meanwhile, contributions can still be made to the Localgiving online fundraiser, where donations will help raise £2,000 towards a cantilever basket swing through https://localgiving.org/appeal/New_Play_Park_Basket_Swing/
